31st October

Just a quick blog today as I’m off out in a minute working a street party/festival and the weather is horrendous at the moment but it does say it’s clearing up for when it starts. I do have a gazebo for the face painter and  myself so hopefully we will be OK.

The new website was meant to be live this weekend but we held off as there are a few things still needing to be sorted. More cosmetic really, the plan is to eventually have the shipping done on weight of items rather than at present on cost. We were not having this going live at the same time as we thought it better to get the website changed over and working and then we can work  on the shipping with options for first class, second class, signed for and guaranteed next day delivery. One of the other problems was with the world wide balloon shortage at the moment I have to put all the out of stock product manually onto the new site so this will take me a day to sort. I don’t have a new date for going live as yet but hopefully another two weeks.
Balloon Art Wholesale.

The model of the month for November is up and we went for the Grim Reaper, I got inspired after the Birmingham day where Rob made a more detailed design for everyone.
Step by step instructions are here, Grim Reaper.

That’s me for today, off to find the random balloon picture of the week.
I went with Bluey that I made a few weeks back.
